The first FM repeater?


Recommended Posts

Apparently the exact date and location of the first amateur radio FM repeater installation is not well-documented. I've tried looking with little luck.

It is generally accepted that the technology started to gain widespread use in the amateur radio community in the 1960s and 1970s, following the development of FM and repeater technologies for commercial and public safety use.

As those of us who use it regularly know, the use of repeaters revolutionized VHF/UHF amateur radio by significantly increasing the range of communication and giving us a means of creating local bonds in ways that HF did not allow.

If anyone has more information about the first FM repeater, at least in the U.S., but anywhere is fine, please do let me know... In the meantime, I'll keep digging.
